About Me

[Sorry but I only accept friend requests from people I know and/or work with]

Jay Krause (ManyWorks Design Studio) is a photographer with over 50 years of photographic experience.  His dad was a military photographer and he grew up with a darkroom.  In 2000 he abandoned chemicals in favor of Photoshop.

His business provides Web Design, Programming (HTML, JavaScript, PHP, etc), Graphic Design, Photography (Product & Fashion) and Business Consulting services, primarily to fashion designers in the San Francisco area.  On behalf of his clients he hires models, makeup/hair, and photographers, as well as providing photographic services in his studio in Mountain View, California.

Photoshoots for his fashion design customers are either in studio, or in different locations (buses, parks, houses, etc) showing off products such as scarves, purses, belts, dresses, etc.  Photos are used on clients web sites, product catalogues, and in promotional literature & mailings.

Jay does not do model portfolios, however photos from photoshoots are always available to the model to include in their portfolio.

In addition to using models for his clients, Jay also hires models for his own art projects, a blend of photo images, photoshop manipulation, and occasionally javascript animation.  His current theme is "hidden image", focused on showing the inner self, feelings, desires reflected in a mirror or with a magic viewer.

Update [February 2015]: I used to simply state that no guests (escorts, chaperones, drivers, etc.) were permitted on site during the shoot.  This was due to several less than wonderful and no positive experiences, including such things as them suggesting different lighting, trying to give me advice about poses, etc.  I still don't want any "guests" in the studio room when shooting, but my new Monterey location has enough room that they can stay on location in dressing or waiting rooms, or in gardens outside.  Internet is available.  One exception: models under 18 must have a legal guardian present.
